Strategy 2017: From Outrage to Action [Conference]

August 18th & 19th in Elmhurst!

Written by Jane Carrell and Carol Davis

OUTRAGED. That’s how most of us reacted over the Independence Day holiday, as many of our so-called “public servants” in Springfield betrayed the citizens of Illinois once AGAIN. In addition to outrage, many of us felt genuine fear: How much more will this cost me? What else will I have to cut from my budget, which is already so tight?! I don’t know about you, but as these thoughts raced through my mind, my fear was soon replaced by white-hot anger and determination. The famous quote from Edmund Burke kept coming back to me, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil, is that good men do nothing.”

That, my friends, is why we must go “From Outrage to Action.

The conference is for Illinois taxpayers who want to save our state. It will be held on Friday starting at noon, August 18th and all day Saturday, August 19th at the Diplomat West Banquet Hall (681 W North Ave, Elmhurst, IL 60126). Meals included (cash bar during “Meet & Greet”)
